Filter datatable with different Syntax

I’m trying to use the built-in filtering function for the dash datatables, but I find the syntax not very user friendly, specifically I don’t like the fact that users need to write “eq foo” when they want to filter by string “foo”, I think intuitively most people would just type “foo”. Is there any way to adjust this syntax? I tried to do it with backend-filtering as well like in the docs, but the things I typed wouldn’t even show up in the “filtering_settings” input, unless they already matched this syntax and used “eq”


I agree that it is not user friendly and would also like to know if anyone else has found a workaround? If I find a solution I’ll be sure to share here.
